The only thing he has left is a passion for revenge. His first chance to get it could be his last…
Jack Lamburt is out for blood. After a brutal terrorist murdered his pregnant wife, he’s sworn not to allow another innocent soul to suffer a similar fate. So how can he say no when an old flame in the CIA recruits him for a covert mission to stop an extremist plot to butcher thousands?
The BookViral Review:
That rare blend of hard-hitting action and smooth-talking dialogue First Justice is primed to deliver high octane thrills in the first of Etzil’s Vigilante Justice Thriller Series.
As readers, we are tragically familiar with the aftermath of terrorism and on a visceral level Etzil taps into our innermost fears to deliver a gripping and pulse-pounding narrative which keeps us on edge. The suspense feels familiar, yet there’s a fullness of understanding that sets it apart.
Thrillers about terrorism typically involve a linear story, but First Justice has a life and logic of its own that in no small part is down to Etzil’s meticulous research. With Jack Lamburt and femme fatale CIA assassin Frankie slotting together like a bullet in a clip the plotting is tightly wound, but rather than get bogged down in laboriously explicated motives Etzil’s characters take us through a kinetic series of escalating events where the pace is relentless.
Giving us just enough to figure out what’s going to happen next whilst taking us to the next level, Lamburt has a certain offhand appeal which makes him particularly endearing. Whilst his guilt and anger over the loss of his wife brings the real-life ongoing war against terrorism into chilling perspective.
In terms of pure entertainment value, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more smartly constructed pulse-pounding read than First Justice and it is recommended without reservation!
